Exploring from a new base

June and July have flown by and I’m writing this update from my new temporary base in Bath in South England. A city I was already familiar with and now I’m feeling lucky to be able to call it my home – although for just a couple of months.

There is something special about getting to feel like a local in a new city, which I recently wrote about on Travelooney Blog – and with this UK-base, I can now easily explore new cities, regions and islands around here. In fact I’m travelling to the Isle of Man for a work-trip in a few hours, and I’m very excited to get to discover this place described as a self-governing crown dependency. Other trips are also already planned, but I’m always open to requests for articles from around here if you need anything specific.

From around mid-September I’ll be “moving camp” once again to be based on the West Coast of Wales until mid-November. A place where I have already been spending several months during the last couple of years, and that I have come to love as one of my second homes-away-from-home. While based there I hope to collect even more exciting material from Wales and beyond – as I’m currently considering a trip to Ireland.

It’s been a good couple of months for Travelooney with a handful of new articles being published in major Danish newspapers – including two cover stories for Berlingske’s Rejseliv. Travelooney Blog is also well-stocked with new exciting material, and in the past week it has seen a peak in visitors from all over the world.

Personally I enjoyed spending a month back home in Denmark in June, exploring my own country and discovering places I had never visited before – proving that you don’t always have to travel far for new experiences. I’m already looking forward to do that even more in the future.

But for now, I’d better pack my suitcase for the Isle of Man…
